I've noticed this same motion on the big kick serves of Roddick. Perhaps Jeff can explain this, but I think it is probably just a result of the high elbow and natural relaxation of the lower arm.
not sure if we are talking about the same thing. Yes, the racket as a whole is away from his body. But the side of the racket face hitting the ball ends up with 'strings facing me' (his own quote), which is the opposite of what happens in the other video I gave the link to.
